Go Fish

The Windisch-Hunt Gallery, here in Coconut Grove, FL is having a "Mail Art" exhibition in February. To participate, you just have to send and envelope with art ;) I thought the ideas was great and of course I wanted to participate. I took one of my 9 x 12 plain envelopes and draw a fish. I really *LOVE* my envelope BUT I made a HUGE mistake. For some crazy reason I never checked the “requirements” of this exhibition and just last night I realize they were asking for 5 x 7 envelopes. Ops!.
So… here is how my envelope looks right now:

(The orange circles are the spots where I *WAS* planning to put my address and the gallery address)
And now I have to figurate out the way to create a 5 x 7 envelope with this funky thing ;)
I promise to share the finally product picture ;)
Happy Friday!!!

perhaps you could save this gorgeous fish for another occasion, and create a new envelope...this is way too pretty to cut up... i'm curious to see what you decide to do!

This is very beautiful! I love the mouth and eyes, this makes the image really three dimensional.
Over all lovely work.
